A Dose of Utter Nonsense!

This new CD is a collection of songs, readings and piano music, based on the wonderful writings of those two masters of the absurd, Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll. It derives from a concert put on in Hastings Museum in 2010, and features some of the original performers: Geoff Hutchinson (narration), Gary Marriott (tenor songs & narration) and Rebecca Mason (jazz singer). All the music is by Michael Short, who also plays the piano and keyboards.

Mixed events start Hastings Week

We’re now into Hastings Week – a series of local events, commemorating the skirmish that occurred nearby on October 14, 1066, and culminating in Bonfire Night this Saturday. Last Saturday we had “Books Born in Hastings”, a mini-bookfair in the neo-Gothic splendour of the Town Hall’s Council Chamber, where local authors and publishers peddled their wares, writes Antony Mair.
